THE HOLY BIBLE, GENESIS TO REVELATION, COVER TO COVER, Pt, 2

Psalms 119: 18

Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

One of the “Wondrous Things” of the first blog was the comparison of this heaven an earth and the new one God will create when eternity starts and God will dwell with us. Another one of the “Wondrous Things” was finding who was there when God created this heaven and earth, particularity the Sons of God of Job 38:7. When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? A third Wondrous Thing is what was God beginning to do with this literal, visible, and physical, creation of heaven and earth, is doing in six literal 24 hour days. Creating all our five senses that we can enjoy , including man as well. Giving that man, Adam, dominion over everything making him a King, over what Matthew calls “The Kingdom of Heaven”.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD

The KOG is a Spiritual kingdom unseen by the naked eye or through the Hubble Telescope, which is above the current universe, known in the Bible as the firmament, Gen. 1:6-8. The KOG, the dwelling place of God, is home too many other types of creatures. Whose attributes are very unique compared to our own! Their make up is a bit more superior to ours, in the fact that they can change their appearance from their own to that of us. The men that appeared with the pre-incarnate Christ to Abraham when Sodom and Gomorrah were in for destruction.

GENESIS 18:1-4. And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

GEN. 18:16, 22. And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord.

Notice in the above passages that these are called men who came with the Lord. Later in the story we shall learn that these men were much more than men. They were angels who changed themselves to appear as men, just as the Lord had done.

GEN. 19:1, 5, And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

The men of Sodom saw them as men, but Lot knew that they were more than just men and knew what the men of Sodom wanted to do with them, to the point that Lot offered his daughters unto them.

GEN. 19:7-8, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

These Angels were righteous, appearing as men doing the will of God. There are, of course Fallen Angels, who do things not of the will of the Lord. Both types of Angels, are referred to as “Sons of God” in Job 1:6, 2:1, and 38:7.

GENESIS 6:1-4, And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants (the Nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

These sons of God were not doing the will of God when taking the daughters of men for their wives and having children that became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. The apostle Jude in his book says Jude 1:6, And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Notice that Moses calls them “sons of God” while Jude refers to them as “Angels”.

Question? Were these “Sons of God”, in Jude, the same as the ones that shouted for joy when at the creation of the heaven and earth, Job 38:7? Or, the ones that came to present themselves before the Lord, Job 1:6, 2:1? I guess it depends on the time line of events, which came first, Job 1:6, 38:7, or Genesis 6:1-4! Obviously the Job passages came first! The passages in Job were speaking of the group called “sons of God” who were present at the creation of the heaven and earth, job 38:7. The other Job passages, Job 1:6, 2:1, came after the heaven and earth were already created.

The Apostle John

The Apostle John in the gospel he wrote introduces another group as the “sons of God”, John 1:11-12. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: This means that the person, who receives Jesus, believes on his name, according to apostle Paul is made a new creature, 2 Cor. 5:17, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. AS John would put it John 1:13, Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John would crouch it with a new term of being “Born Again”, John 3:3, quoting Jesus, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Jesus further explains to Nicodemus John 3:5-7, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a sh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Therefore, there it is from the Almighty Lord Jesus himself,

“Ye must be born again.”

When anyone makes the decision to be “Born Again” things change for sure! Once a citizen of The Kingdom of Heaven, a citizen of earth, your citizenship is no longer here on earth. You live here now! However, Paul writes to the Philippians and says, Phil. 3:20-21. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Like the theme song from The Jeffersons, “Well we’re movin on up,  To the east side.  To a deluxe apartment in the sky.” 

Those who are “Born Again”, although. living here in the “Kingdom of Heaven”, are actually a citizen of the “Kingdom of God”! One day this will be a realized fact when we are caught up to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord, 1 Th. 4:17. What a very “Wondrous Thing”, the catching away of the saints, the Body of Christ, the Church, the Bride of Christ, and yes, the Sons of God!!!

That’s right, “Sons of God”. Those who are Born Again by the Spirit of God become “Sons of God”, John 1:12. Now think about it, the Scripture says, When Satan fell and was cast to the earth that His angels fell with him, REV. 12:9, And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Angels we have learned are in fact “Sons of God”, and it makes you wonder, if the creation of saints made by believing the Gospel now days, in the Age of Grace, in fact are to replace “sons of God” who fell with Satan, when he fell??? Just a thought. While your thinking, read the blog about the Rapture of the Church. This event may happen on the day of Pentecost next year, May 31, 2020!

Creatures of the Kingdom of God

The Creatures that God created that dwell in his kingdom, the Kingdom of God, are these, Cherubim, Seraphim, and Angels. The greatest of the Cherubim is Lucifer, known as son of the Morning, Isa. 14:12, the anointed Cherub the covereth the Throne, Ezek. 28:14-15, “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”


The Holy Bible, Genesis to Revelation, Cover to Cover,

Psalms 119:18.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

INTRODUCTION

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning”, beginning of What? It certainly isn’t the beginning of God, God has no beginning nor ending, he is Eternal, Unchangeable, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Ps. 90:2, Mal.3:6, Jere. 32:27, Ps. 139:7-10, 2 Chronicles 16:9, Respectively.

Revelation 1:8

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” These are the Holy Attributes of the Almighty God! Therefore, what is this the Beginning of?

THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!!!

Now we get to behold a few of those “Wondrous Things” as we start to look into the creation of God.

Genensis 1:1-2

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters

Before we get started with God’s creation let us consider what was present before God started his creation process. We have already established God was already present when talking about his attributes.

There are many beginnings of things in the scriptures, 17 verses of different beginnings of things to be exact. (Gen. 1:1, Judges 7:19, Ruth 1:22, 2 Sam.21:9. Ezra 4:6, Prov. 8:22, Jere. 26:1, 27:1, 28:1, 49:34, Lam. 2:19, Ezek. 40:1, Amos 7:1, John 1:1,2, Phil. 4:15, Heb. 1:10.) What is needed to make things clear is to clarify which beginning is being discussed. In our case the beginning is the beginning of the creation of Heaven and Earth, Gen. 1:1, not the throne room of God, nor the Seraphim, Cherubs, and Angels, they were all there when the God created the heaven and earth.

John 1:1-3,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

Job 38:4-10

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors,
when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
When I made the cloud the garment thereof,
and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
And brake up for it my decreed place,
and set bars and doors,

God was speaking to Job asking questions about the creation of the earth, but notice who was also there, When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
The Word does not say who or what the Morning Stars are, the scriptures do not say 0r even hint to who they are, but it is interesting who the Sons of God are. (Gen. 6:2, 4, Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, John 1:12, Romans 8:14, 19, Phil. 2:15, 1 John 3:1, 2). All of the underlined verses in bold show that the Sons of God are spirit beings and the other verses reveal who become the spirit beings after being born of God.

John 1:11-13

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

That’s right, We become “Sons of God” and we will watch God, after watching him destroy the univserse including the earth, make a new heaven and earth, where there will be no more sea over the universe as there is now and God will dwell with us in the new Jerusalem,

Rev. 21:1-2

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Interesting start about the Creation. This Beginning of heaven and earth is preceded by the Throne Room with a crystal sea, Morning Stars, Sons of God, and other types of creatures in what the apostle Paul called a third heaven 2 Cor. 12:2 existing before God said, “Let there be light” Gen. 1:3. To reveal the merits of this thought is to compare statements from both passages Gen. 1;1-2 and Rev. 21: 1-2. upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and there was no more sea. We will get back “And the earth was without form, and void”, later. The Sea in Rev 21:1-2 is the same Crystal Sea of Rev. 4:6 and 15:2

Revelation 4:6

And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

The Face of the Deep, the Face of the Waters in Gen. 1:1-2 is the same as the Crystal Sea in Revelation by comparing scripture with scripture. Therefore, Job 38:30 will give the light we need to understand is wondrous thing.

Job 38:30

The waters are hid as with a stone,
and the face of the deep is frozen.

The Scripture compared with Scripture makes it easy to understand how these three passages about the “Deep” and “Crystal Sea” are speaking of the same thing. This is important when we continue about the creation of the heaven and earth and the destruction of this heaven and earth and having no more sea. Another verse in Genesis will show what the sea is,

Gen. 1:6-8

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.

We have already established that God’s Throne Room was in existence with the different creatures, Morning Stars, and Sons of God. Gen.1:1-2 mentions the waters, the frozen deep, where the firmament, our universe was immersed into. An inverted fish bowl would best describe what this would look like. The Firmament/universe would be the fish bowl where the waters, instead of being on the inside were on the outside, surrounding the universe, thus having the sea, the deep, below the throne room and above the Firmament/Universe.. Therefore, when God destroys the heaven/universe, and earth, and there is no more sea, then what is left is the Throne Room of God, with all who was there before including all those born-again of the Church Age, those saints of the Old Testament, and Tribulation! There is one of those wondrous sights to behold close to the end of

THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!!!


KINGDOM OF GOD VS KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

The Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven are they one in the same thing or two different kingdoms. Biblical Author, Matthew, is the only apostle to use the phrase KOH.  Why is that?  Why is it that all apostles use KOG, including Matthew?  What makes these two phrases unique? 

This phrase “Kingdom of Heaven”, further known as “KOH” is used by Matthew only 32 times.  I’m not going to exegete all 32 verses but I will show were they are alike with the “Kingdom of God” known further as “KOG”.

Will an examination of Synoptic parallels will demonstrate that the two phrases refer to the same idea?

  • “the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matt. 4:17) || “the kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark 1:15)
  • “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven” (Matt. 5:3) || “Blessed are the poor, for yours is the kingdom of God” (Luke 6:20)
  • “Among those born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist, notwithstanding he who is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than him.” (Matt. 11:11) || “Among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist, but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than him.” (Luke 7:28)
  • “the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 13:11) || “the mysteries of the kingdom of God” (Mark 4:11 cp. Luke 8:10)
  • “the kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed” (Matt 13:31) || “the kingdom of God…is like a grain of mustard seed” (Mark 4:30-31 cp. Luke 13:18-19)
  • “The kingdom of Heaven is like leaven” (Matt. 13:33) || “the kingdom of God…is like leaven” (Luke 13:20)
  • “Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven” (Matt. 18:3-4) || “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein” (Mark 10:15)
  • “Allow little children, and do not forbid them to come to me, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” (Matt. 19:14) || “Allow the little children to come to me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:14 cp. Luke 18:16)
  • “a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of Heaven” (Matt. 19:23) || “How hardly shall they who have riches enter into the kingdom of God!” (Luke 18:24).                                                                                                               2018 Bible.org

 There are two verses in Matthew I would like to discuss Matthew 19:23, 24.  

23, Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24,  And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Moody dissertation on KOG vs KOH.    Question: “What is the difference between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven?”

Answer: While some believe that the Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven are referring to different things, it is clear that both phrases are referring to the same thing.   (IT is not clear clear that both phrases are referring to the same thing, although, Moody says they are and even though, the following phrases contain facts.) (EMPHASIS MINE)        The phrase “kingdom of God” occurs 68 times in 10 different New Testament books, while “kingdom of heaven” occurs only 32 times, and only in the Gospel of Matthew. Based on Matthew’s exclusive use of the phrase and the Jewish nature of his Gospel, some interpreters have concluded that Matthew was writing concerning the millennial kingdom while the other New Testament authors were referring to the universal kingdom. However, a closer study of the use of the phrase reveals that this interpretation is in error.  (2 Tim 2:15,   A Rightly dividing of the word of truth, over these verses will reveal that the KOG and KOH are very different.)(EMPHASIS MINE).

For example, speaking to the rich young ruler, Christ uses “kingdom of heaven” and “kingdom of God” interchangeably. (Matthew 19:23) Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven’” . In the very next verse, (Matthew 19:24) proclaims, “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”.    Jesus makes no distinction between the two terms but seems to consider them synonymous.    (2 Tim 2:15,   A Rightly dividing of the word of truth, over these verses will reveal that the KOG and KOH are very different.)(EMPHASIS MINE)

Mark and Luke used “kingdom of God” where Matthew used “kingdom of heaven” frequently in parallel accounts of the same parable Compare Matthew 11:11-12 with Luke 7:28; Matthew 13:11with Mark 4:11 and Luke 8:10; Matthew 13:24 with Mark 4:26; Matthew 13:31 with Mark 4:30 and Luke 13:18; Matthew 13:33 with Luke 13:20; Matthew 18:3 with Mark 10:14 and Luke 18:16; and Matthew 22:2 with Luke 13:29. In each instance, Matthew used the phrase “kingdom of heaven” while Mark and/or Luke used “kingdom of God.” Clearly, the two phrases refer to the same thing.   (IT is not clearly that both phrases are referring to the same thing, although, Moody says they are.) (EMPHASIS MINE)

It is easy to say that because one biblical writer said similar things in a few comparative verses only, or clearly, means they are the same.  However, just the opposite is the truth, they are similar in those few places, but very different and speak of 2 very different Kingdoms.  They are different for these reasons:

1A,  Definition of the word “Kingdom”

Here is where some light will shine forth with the definition “Kingdom”.   Kingdom, basileia, and βασιλεία, (Greek Word), means reign of a realm, a kingdom reign .  Jesus would be the king that rules both kingdoms.  While both kingdoms are similar at times it is because each kingdom is ruled by Jesus.  Thus, answering the phrase “the Kingdom of God/Heaven is at hand “.   Each biblical author could say that when they wrote was because Jesus was there when they wrote about the situation.  

1B,  The word “heaven” has a variety of uses as well and is defined as;

noun. 1 a place regarded in various religions as the abode of God (or the gods) and the angels, and of the good after death, often traditionally depicted as being above the sky. • God (or the gods): Constantine was persuaded that disunity in the Church was displeasing to heaven. • Theology a state of being eternally in the presence of God after death. • used in various exclamations as a substitute for “God”: heaven knows! | good heavens! 2 (often heavens) literary the sky, especially perceived as a vault in which the sun, moon, stars, and planets are situated: Galileo used a telescope to observe the heavens. 3 informal a place, state, or experience of supreme bliss: lying by the pool with a good book is my idea of heaven.

According to any good real-estate agent the best place to live is determined by 3  things, Location, Location, and Location, therefore, in which location do you find the KOG and the KOH?   Each has a different location for they were both Created at different times!

1C,  The Kingdom of God existed before the Kingdom of Heaven, Job 38:3-7,

 God questioning Job,   “Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.    Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.  Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?  or who hath stretched the line upon it?  Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?   or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together,  and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”

These sons of God noted in the passage are spiritual beings, (JOB 1:6, 2:1) angels, watching the Lord create the Heavens and the Earth.  Emphasis being that God already had a kingdom that he was in control of called (Kingdom of God), while in the process of creating another Realm (The Kingdom of Heaven), that is entirely Physical in nature, contingent on space, time, and dimensional aspects. Although, no matter how similar they are or may appear, they are in no way, shape, or form, the same.  For the KOG is Spiritual and the KOH is Physical! (Emphasis Mine).  The subjects of each kingdom are different!  Subjects of the KOH cannot enter the KOG upon their own volition!   They are physical, I Cor. 15:50, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption”,  The subjects of the KOG upon its creation were all direct creations of God, all Spiritual.  The same was true for the KOH, for Adam was a direct creation of God, however, physical, Genesis 1:26-27, in that he was called “son of God”, Luke 3:38.  Satan was member of this KOG as the anointed Cherub that covereth the throne,       Ezekiel 28:14, Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.”  God created hosts and hosts and thousands of thousands of angels, for there was no procreation among angels, Matthew 26:53,  Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?  

Adam and Eve were Direct creations of God and yet were both made of the dust of the ground, (Physical).  Every one else were born physical, of flesh and blood and cannot inherit the KOG, but must be born again John 3:5-7, ” Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

Therefore the KOG is a spiritual kingdom and the KOH is a physical kingdom made at two specific different times and are as different as night and day.  They are different in where, when, and who, they were made, and who they were made for.   Who the subjects that lived in each are very different in substance, form, and purpose!

These parallel verses while looking like the phrases are used interchangeable, they are showing they  both have problems with the rich      Matthew 19:23,  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.     Matthew 19:24, again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The problem with the rich is that they have no need for God.  They are increased with goods and have need of nothing.  That attitude with the church of Laodicean, Rev 3:17, “ Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”, shows the problem with someone who has no need of God in any realm or kingdom they dwell in.  These verses are only interchangeable in relation to the rich who think they do not need God, but does not mean the two kingdoms are the same.

The facts that each kingdom were, 1. constructed at different times, (KOG existed before KOH), 2.  in different ways, (KOG Spiritual Realm, KOH Physical Realm and 3.  having different types of beings to live in each of them, (KOG Angels, KOH Humans), shows that they are not the same on so many different levels, it is foolish to think they are the same, no matter how many verses show their similarities or who say they are the same.

The End Times, Cont’d

 The End Times are here, not full-blown as of yet, but then again, Christians have had a reprieve from the Lord in the election of Present Donald Trump!  Things get full0blown 3.5 years once the AntiChrist things get started.  

trump-president-3

What I mean by that is, if Trump was not the president. our country was inline to become a third class country, setting the time  for when the Antichrist would step in and create his one world government!  I know that sounds alarmist, but if you are watching the news these days and seeing all the problems this president is having and know anything about the “Globalist Agenda”, You know through the Obama years we were being set up for that very thing!

I bring this up now so you can be aware of how close the catching away of the church is, thats right the Rapture!  The Nation of Israel sees it like this in the their Holy Feast Days, Leviticus 23, especially the fall feasts.   The first fall feast being the Feast of Trumpets!

The Feast of Trumpets was a blowing of trumpets to announce to God’s people of a time of judgement and Christ’s coming, ” (Joel 2:1; see also Zephaniah 1:14,16).  Now while these three feasts all are in the same month of Tishri the timing or fullment of their events may happen in different years.  Daniel’s prophecy in Dan 9, 24-27, noting the time of Jacobs trouble, Jeremiah 30, that there may be years between the three fall Feasts, even though they are celebrated every year at the same time each year.  There are 7 years between Christ’s actual coming and a time of judgement by the anti-christ, Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Jer. 30, Dan 9:24-27. (See blogs on The Feats of the Lord Parts 1 & 2

For the Christian this lines up with, you guessed it, the Rapture, When all are caught up to meet the Lord in the air, I Thess. 4:13-18, I Cor. 15:50-54.

rapture2

Israel will face judgement from the Lord for the rejection of their Messiah.  The Christian’s judgement is located at the Judgement Seat of Christ, I Cor. 3:11-15. Another topic fo another blog.  

The time leading up to the rapture is the subject at hand along with those events that set it in place.   The question to ask is, “Where is the USA in all this?”  or “What kind of political situation does the USA face for this to happen?”   Obama was getting America in that position with his policies while in office.  You can read the “Globalist Agenda” at www.globalistagenda.org/.  Here a few exerts from there.

Overpopulation

The elite have long viewed a rising population as a threat to their dominance. They realized that eventually a large number of people will inevitably overthrow and remove them from power. They are particularly concerned with the middle class whose intelligence and capacity to organize makes them the biggest threat. Consequently, the elite plan to destroy the middle class and make all the of public equally poor and thus incapable of rebelling. As written on the Georgia Guidestones, they want a global population of just 500 million. This means 6+ billion people must die over the coming century.

Dumbing Down of the Population

A well informed and educated population is the last thing they want as they prepare to bring the people through the greatest period of change in human history. To accomplish this they have systematically reduced the quality of education and have chemically reduced the IQ of the population by adding fluoride to the water and mercury to the vaccines.

What is truly remarkable about this whole thing is that the Bible predicted this several thousand years ago.  Read about the four horse men of Revelation 6, when Christ opens the 7 sealed book.    Rev.  6:7-8, “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”  So a fourth part of the Earth’s population, 7.6 Billion, would be 1.9 Billion people die in that event.

Population Reduction

As stated in the section on beliefs, the elite are obsessed with over population and have written about it for centuries. Consequently, as written on the Georgia Guidestones, they want a global population of just 500 million. This means 6 billion people must die over the coming century starting in 2010. http://www.globalistagenda.org/.

The Globalist Agenda was delayed in the election of Donald Trump and why we have all the trouble with our politicians these days. Presidential candidate and highly successful businessman Donald Trump said it best; we should be concentrating on Americanism, not globalism.”  The “Globalist Agenda”.

The Atlantic Council, a think-tank, wrote a 57-page report, “Envisioning 2030: U.S. Leadership in a Post-Western World,” to help prepare the Obama Administration and its global partners for unprecedented change.”

The report predicts a future of “vast economic and political volatility, environmental catastrophe, and conflicting, inward-looking nationalisms that would be unlike any period that the United States has seen before.”  “President Obama will be setting the tone and direction for U.S. policy in a post-Western world.” (Atlantic Council, Executive Summary, p. 5)

President Obama was very much an agent to bring in the “Globalist Agenda”, as you can see by what he has said,    “Instead of having a set of policies that are equipping people for the globalization of the economy, we have policies that are accelerating the most destructive trends of the global economy.” , “My second piece of advice is to stay global. As the world continues to change and we become more connected to each other, globalization will bring both benefits and disruptions to our lives. But either way, it’s here, and it’s not going away.” Barack Obama”.

The agenda has been set, “This is a succinct presentation of the madness contained in the various plans to transform the planet: Agenda 21, Agenda 2030 and now Vision 2050. This is Technocracy at its peak, and the only opportunity we will have to stop it is before it imposes a complete scientific dictatorship. TN Editor.”

Remember,  we are talking about the “Rapture and the AntiChrist” coming to power.  In doing so, according to Gavin Finley MD – endtimepilgrim.org and his work on,  “METONIC CYCLES AND THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL”, gives us various dates when the rapture could happen,

The lines in yellow are the years when the rapture is most likely to happen.     The lines in yellow show the dates when “The Feast of Trumpets” would sound that the Rapture would happen.   While some scholars think the rapture would happen  according to this timing.  We see in the chart the first two dates in yellow are past, leaving the years 2020, 2022, and 2025 left.   However, while these lines in yellow, denote the year.  These dates, May 31, 2020, June 5-6, 2022,  June 8, 2025,  are possible for the Feast of Pentecost that the Rapture would happen.

Our Great Lord and Savior Jesus is a sovereign God and his plans will not be upset by man.  His plan is set and no matter what the “Globalist” may intend to happen it will not happen, but instead use their plan to his benefit on his terms and not before.  That’s why I said we have had a reprieve from the Lord in the election of Present Donald Trump! 

THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, PART 2

THE SPRING FEASTS,  fullsizeoutput_20c

Here are the Original Spring Feasts Dates.

Feast of Passover,                   14 Nisan, 3790, or Wednesday, April 5, 30AD,                                  Feast of Unleavened Bread, 15-21 Nisan, 3790, or Thursday, Wednesday, 4-10, 30AD.                  Feast of Firstfruits,                 18 Nisan, 3790, or Sunday, April 7, 30AD,                            Pentecost,                                   8 Sivan, 3790, or Sunday,  May 26, 30 AD

an overview of the Feasts of the Lord, we will be looking at them according to date on the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars, which can be a little confusing at times.

Passover on the Hebrew calendar is always on 14 Nisan no matter what day of the week it falls on in the Gregorian we pagans use today.

Unleavened Bread follows Passover on the calendar, therefore, the dates are 15-21 Nisan, lasting one week.

Firstfruits, according to the Scriptures, it will be on a Sunday, the first day of the week!     Matt. 28:1,  “In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher”. 

These first three feasts speak of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.  Jesus’ death, for the Israelites, as the slain lamb, whose blood was placed on the door post as the angel of death passover the Israelites to spare the first born son of each home, Exodus 12.  The Unleavened Bread was to be eaten with the lamb and bitter herbs.    This bread speaks of the sinlessness of the savior and the casting out of sin from a person’s life.  For we know a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump, Gal. 5:9.  The Feast of Firstfruits speak of the Resurrection of Christ from the grave, gaining victory over Death, Hell, and Satan.   

The timing of these events comes into question here, especially with Passover and Firstfruits.  Firstfruits need be on Sunday, as noted above and Jesus was 3 days and nights in the grave, Matt. 12:40,   “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”.   This means that this Passover was on a Wednesday not on Friday in a particular year in the life of Christ.  You cannot get 3 full days and nights with a Friday Death, Burial, and resurrection.   The Resurrection when Christ rose from the dead was on the sunset at the end of the weekly Saturday Sabbath, 6:01pm Saturday, the Hebrew first day of the week, Sunday, Matt. 28:1.  

Passover Nisan 14, 3790,   April 3, 30 AD is a Wednesday,  meaning Nisan 15, 30 AD is a High Sabbath Day, and the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread.  Also meaning, within a two week time line there will be four Sabbath Days, two regular and two high sabbath days.  Firstfruits would be 18 Nisan, 3790,  or Sunday,  April 7, 30 AD.

Pentecost was 50 days following the Feast of Firstfruits, 7 Sabbaths and one day.  The resurrection of Christ Jesus was a Sunday, therefore, the Feast of Shavuot, of weeks, of harvest, or Pentecost is a Sunday, (8 Sivan, 3790, May 26, 30 AD), Ex.23:14-17, Lev 23, Duet. 16:16.  The correct annual date for Pentecost is not connected to the date of Easter, and Pentecost did not originate with the beginnings of Christianity.   The Greek word πεντηκοστή in the Septuagint translation of the Old Testament in reference to the Hebrew’s Feast of Shavuot, which is celebrated every year in very late spring.

It should be noted that Jesus fulfilled each of these feasts, not only observing them each year he lived, but actually became them with His Death, Burial, and Resurrection and through the Spirit, Pentecost.  It is also amazing that the Jews missed these events since they were all mentioned in the Old Testament hundreds of years before they happened and these feasts they practiced and rehearsed every year!

The Feast of Trumpets falls on the first of Tishri, the 7th month of the Hebrew sacred calendar and first on the civic calendar.  Israel, has two calendars because they reflect both the Lunar and solar calendars.  Wikilinks said The Hebrew calendar, “is a lunisolar calendar used today predominantly for Jewish religious observances. It determines the dates for Jewish holidays and the appropriate public reading of Torah portions, yahrzeits (dates to commemorate the death of a relative), and daily Psalm readings, among many ceremonial uses. In Israel, it is used for religious purposes, provides a time frame for agriculture and is an official calendar for civil purposes, although the latter usage has been steadily declining in favor of the Gregorian calendar.”

The Feasts of Trumpets, Leviticus 23:23-25,  is the only feast that is based on the sighting of the new moon while all the others are based on the full moon.  Since it is based on the new moon sighting it is interesting to note that there is no one certain day it can called, because it took two priests to make a physical sighting of when the new moon was and that info had to be passed on to the High Priests.  This Day is also known as one long day.  This Day is also associated the wedding feast of the bridegroom coming for his bride.     It is started with a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, and an holy convocation.  It is also called Rosh Hashanah, which means “Head of the Year,” because it marks the beginning of the Jewish civil calendar.  The Hebrew word תרועה Yom Teruah, has this definition, which means “a shout” or “a blowing.” It appears that the shofar (ram’s horn) was to be blown at this time, as it was on the other new moons (Psalm 81:3). Jewish tradition indicates that both the ram’s horn and the priestly silver horns (hazozerah) were used in the Feast of Trumpets.  The Feast of Trumpets was a blowing of trumpets to announce to God’s people of a time of judgement and Christ’s coming, ” (Joel 2:1; see also Zephaniah 1:14,16).  Now while these three feasts all are in the same month of Tishri the timing or fullment of their events may happen in different years.  Daniel’s prophecy in Dan 9, 24-27, noting the time of Jacobs trouble, Jeremiah 30, that there may be years between the three fall Feasts, even though they celebrated every year at the same time each year.  There are 7 years between Christ’s actual coming and a time of judgement by the anti-christ, Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Jer. 30, Dan 9:24-27.

The Feast of Atonement is kept on 10 Tishri for 5 days, and known as Yom Kippur.  Leviticus 16:1-34 brings out all the rituals involved, in how the priests are to react and how the Children of Israel are to repent before the Lord returns. Jews today still celebrate the annual Day of Atonement, traditionally observing this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. This Feast falls on different days each year in the Gregorian calendar in September-October, like all the rest of the feasts.  The first Yom Kippur was instituted the day after the the Israelites worshipped the golden calf, and Moses told them they had sinned a great sin, Ex 32:30-33 and Ex 34:39-30 When Moses came down claiming God had forgiven them.  

The Feast of Tabernacles is celebrated on 15 Tishri by the Israelites.  On our modern Gregorian calendar, which did NOT exist at the time of Christ Jesus’ birth, He would have been born on Saturday, 30 September, 4BC, according to the Hebcal Converter, and not December 25th, as the Catholics set forth.   The Feast of Tabernacles.  15 Tishri,  3761 (Hebrew year must be in the common era (3761 and above)  on the Hebrew’s calendar,  would be the day Jesus was born and is associated when He comes again 15 Tishri in an up coming year, marks when Jesus will come again to establish His kingdom here on earth as the King of Kings, Rev. 19.  This comes from believing the verse that says Jesus is Emanuel, God With Us, Matthew 1:23, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us”.  He was with us at his birth and will be again at his second coming and that time is celebrated by the Israelites each year on  15 Tishri, the Feast of Tabernacles, or Feast of Booths.   

Leviticus 23:39-43,   Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.Sukkot-56a1485c3df78cf772692870

ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT?

The time is drawing near as mentioned in the blog about the End Time Events.  We are on the eve of the Anti-Christ playing his “One World Government” card.  Internet sources predict a 2030 date for there agenda to kick off, or be in full swing, that is just twelve years from now.  The goals of the Anti-Christ are laid out in the book of Revelation chapter thirteen.   The agenda of the anti-Christ through the United Nations is to make this happen as seen in the chart.14134705_666038046886022_737894274_n

The last four Presidents were all in favor of this agenda. The Sovereign God to ensure his plan caused an upset in Satan’s agenda with our 2016 Presidential election!  He placed a President in office that has thwarted this agenda like no other!   1 Cor. 1:27-28   “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are”.   If you watch the news you can see how God has gummed up the works for Liberals and the Democrats by his choice of president or the USA in the last election!

“The only thing they are lacking right now is a sufficient crisis big enough to win enthusiastic public support in America and other nations in the world for full-on global governance,” says Paul McGuire, a Fox News and History Channel contributor and co-author of the new release, “Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End Time Mystery.”        Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2015/09/obama-puts-u-s-on-fast-track-to-world-government/#OwDMhe4J6u9E9fsC.99.

Do you think the Korean, “Rocket Man” could provide this substantial crisis that would be big enough to kick this off?     But this is no joking matter and I don’t mean to make light of this situation.  But what this really means is that one needs to be sure they have a right relationship with the Lord.  They need to ask God to forgive their sin and ask Christ to come into their heart and save them.   Follow this scripture

Romans 10:9-13 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT?

End Time Events

In the way our country and our world have established themselves, one could say we are in the “End Times”!   It was seen Nov. 28, 2017 that North Korea has an ICBM missile that can now reach the USA!    So the question is, how long is it before the Antichrist plays the “One World Government” card?   There is no doubt that the USA is under the judgment of God, with hurricanes in the south, forrest fires in California, a volcano in Hawaii, and now a vicious threat from North Korea.   This is a very real threat could be the event that could push the USA into WWIII.  We are seeing Sexual Harassment and Assault cases in every area from governmental agencies to the private sector, which alone to be enough to bring the judgment of God upon us.

          The key to the beginning of end time events is the Nation of Israel.  What is happening to them is what needs to be looked at to determine were we are at in the end times.  However, it will take a crisis to bring in the End Times.  Look at this quote from Paul McGuire, a Fox News and History Channel contributor and co-author of the new release, “Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End Time Mystery.   “The only thing they are lacking right now is a sufficient crisis big enough to win enthusiastic public support in America and other nations in the world for full-on global governance,”   

Should North Korea shoot off a missile or the USA set off a pre-emptive strike could be the crisis it takes to set off the one world government movement.
